The Market bar would be classified as a Spanish Tapas Bar. A converted indoor market with unusually good atmosphere for what was a market prior to conversion. It was very... More

We had lunch in this very unusual restaurant. I am sure it must be buzzing in the evening as they have a large bar upstairs. We were very happy with the meal and service. Apparently Fade Street is quite trendy.

Went to the Market Bar last Friday for a friends birthday. We didn't book a table so had to wait 45 mins but the place has a great ambience so we enjoyed a drink before hand. There were 9 of us and we all agreed the food was amazing, good value and generous portions. We had a really great waitress... More

Called in for a tapas lunch last weekend. Be careful guys the portions are massive! Had too much food, but it was absolutely delicious, the cheese and meat board is great for sharing. Decent wine menu and happy with the service and atmosphere. We will be back, I'd definitely recommend.

I have been to the Market Bar twice now and both times have had a great experience! I went with a large group a couple of months ago, no problem getting a table on a Sunday night. We got loads of food to share and really enjoyed trying each others plates. There is a 12.5% service charge on groups of... More
